Look and Style : The new post-facelift car looks simply fantastic, a joy to look at, with the trademark Hyundai fluidic designed grille, whilst the rear with the new look tail-lamps looks better than the pre-facelift version.
Comfort : Comfort wise, the car has no rivals, great comfortable seating, front and rear, while it's easy to find a comfortable driving position, though seat height adjust should be included. The Rear bench has enough legroom for all but the tallest person, with decent under thigh support and adequate knee room. Simply the class best.
Pickup : Start-up is a silent, if not vide-free affair, while the clutch is jerky but progressive but needs some revs in quick-moving traffic to prevent the engine from stalling, which is easy if you aren't accustomed to the car well enough. For city driving, the car has a fantastic low-end grunt and mid-range grunt is also good but over 80kmph, for highway cruising, downshifts are needed to extract the max speed else you have to hit the rev-limiter as the top-end grunt is all but absent.
Mileage : Mileage/Fuel efficiency is simply outstanding. In normal city driving, the car gives nearly 15 Kmpl, while though highway driving isn't conducive, it still gives a decent 16kmpl, given the constant downshifts and acceleration needed to maintain decent highway speed.
Best Features : Dashboard located Gearshift, Adequate storage spaces, outstanding service and maintenance program.
Needs to improve : Ride quality, highway stability, needs wider tyres.
Overall Experience : Hyundai's i10, is simply a joy to live with and to drive. Perfect for a small family, provides adequate comfort and performance for enthusiasts with neutral handling while can also indulge in some highway fun, though not entirely recommended. Overall it's a great car, a perfect all-rounder, excels in almost every department you take.
